Start with a duplicate image, so you aren't changing your original. Promote background to layer. Duplicate layer twice.
On the top layer, enhance edges (and depending on the image, you may need enhance more). Then use the Simplifier filter with every option up to the max. This gives you a nearly black and white stark outline. Set the layer mode to multiply. (I renamed it outline) Hide layer for now.
On the next layer down, use Gaussian blur. Here again, it depends on the image and your personal taste. I think I used around 3. Duplicate this layer 3 times.
Change the blend mode on the top blur layer to color. Hide layer.
Change the bottom blur layer to screen. Hide layer.
On the middle blur layer, add a texture of your choice. Mine was a watercolor paper texture. Change this layer to screen mode as well. (I named this blur with texture, the other two blur layers I just named blur.)
Above this middle blur layer, add a new raster layer, and flood fill with white. Add noise. I used 50% random. Now use Motion blur, set at 45 degrees and 100%. Set this layer mode to multiply. (I named this diagonal)
Now, show all layers, and adjust the diagonal layer to the opacity I liked best. For me, that was around 60%.
You can play with the various layer modes, and opacities, on order to find what you like most. I hope that most of this translates for PS as well.
